There is a garland for every occasion these days. I should have called the post “Garlands: not just for Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah or Valentines day anymore” Right? …OR! I could just give you a simple DIY for a St. Patrick’s Day garland. Garlands are great because you likely already have the materials you need and your kids can definitely get involved.

 

You’ll Need

  • 1-inch circle punch
  • 2-inch circle punch
  • White cotton string
  • Glue stick
  • An array of scrapbooking papers, in patterns of green and white

St. Patrick's Day Garland

Directions

  1. Using a circle punch, create two-of-each circles from a variety of green or white patterned or plain scrapbooking papers, in a number of sizes.
  2. Take your circle cut outs and arrange each circle with the one that matches in a varying row across a table or countertop.
  3. When you’ve decided on an order to place the circles, place them in a row and stretch out a length of string alongside your row of circles.  Leave a couple feet extra for the start, to leave extra length to hang the string later
  4. Rub glue stick on side of the paper circles you do not want shown – on the corresponding circles
  5. Press the string in the middle of each “bottom” circle and press the second “top” circle firmly on top of the string.
  6. Do the same thing for the rest of the circles, keeping a similar length between each circle pair throughout the garland.
  7. When you’re finished  trim the end of the string but leave several feet extra for hanging.
